Well I was hoping that since I have never ran the engine that the block would not be filled yet. In fact I never even topped off the radiator. I put in two gallons of the orange and still could not see collant at the top of my radiator filler neck.

I was thinking to pull that lower hose, drain the orange stuff, put the hose back on, fill with water, drain that water, fill with water and drain a second time then fill'er up with the green stuff. Hopefully that will be enough. I cant imagine it circulated too far without actually starting the engine.

Am I wrong?
